" My interest in becoming a Millennium Fellow stems from my goal of promoting equality in the access to justice. By improving the legal knowledge of the public, I aspires to create a level playing field for the marginalized groups in society. It is an incredible honour to become one of the Millennium Fellows and I am looking forward to gaining new insights into the issue by learning from the experienced leaders through this programme. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Legal Education Initiative
This project is dedicated to promote legal education among the disadvantaged groups in Hong Kong. To do so, I have produced some materials related to anti-discrimination laws in Hong Kong and the leaflets to explain what is equality. On the weekends, I would accompany a few of my friends to distribute the leaflets in Central of Hong Kong, where many foreign domestics helpers gather around during their days off.
Apart from distributing leaflets, I have also set upt Instagram page to promote equality concepts and share some recent updates on anti-discrimination laws over the world. Through the social media promotion, I was able to promote the awareness of anti-discrimination and equality among university students.
